NaNo Update

I think I've been a bit ambitious this year, trying to do too many things at once, including all the promotion for the new novel! I did finish the next novella in the Aphrodite and Adonis series yesterday and it's away to my publisher for a verdict. But I'm not getting on fast enough with the Victorian crime novel for the NaNo word count (although I probably am achieving it if I count the novella). However, it's not set in stone to write 50,000 words so I'll carry on and see how I get on - any number of words will move the story on.

Since it was a gorgeous cold and dry autumn day here yesterday, we took advantage of a lovely, bracing walk beside the river. Much better than slogging away at a computer and it does help to clear the mind a little.

Tomorrow (Tuesday), I'm on a visit to Charlotte Harrison's lovely blog - A Place on the Bookshelf. Might see you there!

You're closer to 50,000 words than I am, Rosemary ('cos I'm not doing Nano!). What a very, very beautiful place to walk.

It's difficult setting realistic targets, isn't it? I know that if I try to do too much I'm likely to give up - but if I don't challenge myself then I don't get much done.

Good Luck with your writing target, Rosemary. I'm sure you'll be able to move things forward if not to write several thousand works!

Jean Bull said...

I mean words!

I suppose every little helps, Wendy - thanks!

A balancing act, Patsy!

Thanks, Jean!

What a glorious place in the photo, Romy! A good source of inspiration. Good luck with NaNo. I wrote a complete rough draft one year and haven't done it since. Too many other things currently on the calendar.
